RE: begonia mallet

I am quoting from the Thompson book on Begonias: "Begonias in this group require generally the same culture as most other cane-like types, although they seem to need less sunlight and more humidity than others. Midday sun should be avoided. Place them where humidity is at least 50%." I would say average temperature and average potting soil would meet their requirements. I have always found the Mallet types a little difficult to grow, and I do not know where you can find B. U062 or B. U093. I hope this helps.
